IHSAA CLASS OF 2021 RB POWER RANKINGS
1 Devin Mockobee (Boonville 6-foot-0, 190 pounds) — Committed to Navy, Mockobee is the state’s top rusher (1,412 yards, 21 TDs) and the total package out of the backfield.
2 Carson Steele (Center Grove 6-2, 210) — Runs with as much heart and soul as any prospect in the Midwest, Steele is a Tim Riggins-like power package rushing the pigskin.
3 Wenkers Wright (Floyd Central 6-0, 180) — Committed to Illinois State, Wright is nicknamed the “Haitian Hurricane” because he leaves disaster and devastation in his wake when toting the rock.
4 Omarion Dixon (West Lafayette Harrison 6-1, 220) — The best value of any recruit on the offensive side of the ball in the state right now, this kid is a thoroughbred who runs with purpose and poise.

6 Cameron Hovey (Sheridan 6-0, 190) — Oozing with next-level upside, think Dalvin Cook.
7 Mark McDonald (Columbus East 6-0, 200) — Oozing with next-level upside, think Alvin Kamara.
8 Aaron Nevil (North Harrison 5-9, 225) — Possibly the toughest running back to tackle in the state right now (1090 yards, 13 TDs).

10 (tie) Jake Langdon (Indianapolis Cathedral 6-0, 190) — Most rugged runner in the state, ride-or-die-type. Committed to Columbia.
